I'm trying to get into it but it seems soo mind boggling to me. Any tips?

What websites do you use to print online coupons?

I just use local ads with whatever manufacturer coupons I find. I just don't have time like they do on extreme couponing. I either look online or get a Sunday paper then plan a lot of my menu around what's on sale.
Don't buy stuff your family doesn't like/use, even if its a great price.
I'm still looking for good sites as well.

I think it's great....I don't know how myself...I'd love to be able to stockpile.

It takes a couple weeks to start getting the coupons accumulated. My grocery has B1G1 items weekly. I match those items up with 2 manufacturer coupons and sometimes a store coupon even. I dont stockpile. I only buy stuff we use and at max 4 of something (or 6-8 if its frozen veggies). I mainly use it for staples....pasta, sauce, canned tomatoes, cereal, juice, etc.

I am not sure where you live but I use southernsavers.com. She tells you what coupons match what ad.

I don't normally print coupons because my local grocery store always gives me a hard time when I try to use them.  I just clip what comes in the Sunday paper.

The best tip I can give is to get yourself a good organizer or binder.  You can clip and print coupons with all good intentions but if you don't keep them organized you'll probably not use them.  Organization makes couponing so much easier.  And take the time to go through them every week to clean out expired ones.

I think that's my problem. I just have a stack of them and I don't keep them organized.

 Sit down with your coupons and the weekly ads to match up the best deals.

check your grocers coupon policy, some stores only give you a 4 coupon limit

Couponmom.com sends weekly emails with several stores sale and coupon matchups as well as the new coupons. Ppgazette.com has several coupon sites combined so its one stop coupon picking
